Seniors— IS 



Seniors bring life to 'Death' 



Skeptics have predicted for years that the 
senior-sponsored play would soon become a 
thing of the past. Dwindling crowds and less- 
than-dedicated cast members have been the 
rule rather than the exception. The class of 
1985 came through with an exception, how- 
ever, as "Death Takes a Holiday" was an al- 
most total success. Although attendance 
could have been much better, the staging 
was nearly perfect and audiences were enter- 
tained bv a superb performance. 

Sponsor Shirley Smith's choice of plays 
was admirably suited for a cast which had 
both talent and stage experience. With added 
help from Michael Kelley, student teacher 
for Mr. David Stewart, she was able to put 
her cast through several weeks of rehearsal in 



preparation for the public performances. 
Hard work paid off as audiences were filled 
with praise for the cast. 

Audiences were particularly surprised by 
an exceptional performance from junior Joe 
Colwell in the role of His Serene Highness, 
Prince Sirki of Vitalba Alexandri. He was an 
impressive figure as his deep voice made him 
a believable representation of Death on the 
dimly lighted stage. 

Other cast members included Theresa 
Marshall, Lisa Pearcy, Guy Clark, Eileen 
Heady, Elizabeth Sechrist, Emily Eckstein, 
Michael Stacey, Laura Kollman, Danny Cain, 
Steve Rubick, Shelley Ross, and Steve John- 
son. 




UPPER RIGHT: Guy Clark shrinks back from Joe Colwell, who makes his

TOP: Cast members gather around as an "unconscious" SheUej Ross is tin- 
center of attention on stage.

use of hoih language to COnvej her part.

pretation is a complete SUCCeSS. 



Senior Pie* — !' 



Lip synch 
a success 



Perhaps the most successful event of the 
school year was the lip synch and dance con- 
test sponsored by the student council on De- 
cember 7. A large and enthusiastic audience 
left the auditorium with pleasant memories 
of one of the most entertaining programs 
presented at Howe in many years. 




TOP RIGHT: Senior Debbie McClendon moves as 
she lip synchs to "Pretty Mess" by Vanity. 

ABOVE: Junior James McReynolds gives the audi- 
ence a wave as he exits from the stage after his

The annual powderpuff "football" game 
is one of the year's most entertaining activi- 
ties with freshman/junior and sophomore/se- 
nior teams squared off in "friendly" compe- 
tition. Any resemblance to the real game of 
football is usually left on the practice field 
as humor outweighs athletics.

Freshman gym classes reached figures of well 
over 100 and academic classes reached fig- 
ures of fortv or more in several instances. 
Both teachers and students adjusted well, 
however, and performances remained strong. 
Howe students continued to do well in com- 
petition against students from other schools.

ROTC cadets 
learn to lead 



The motto on the J ROTC crest for India- 
napolis says, "Knter to learn, go forth to 
lead." This motto i- especially true for 
Howe. I ndi-r the instruction of SA1 MSG 
Corbin M. Davis (Ret) ami tin- ,\I. SFC 
Robert L. Malum- (Ret.), the curriculum has 
become more classroom-oriented. The cadet, 
when first entering the corps, IS taught the 
basics in various areas (map reading, oral 
communication, etc.). B\ the time the cadet 
reaches his fourth year, he is in a leadership 
position and in Borne instances i> teaching 
the first-year classes. 

The JROTC corps received the Honor 
Unit with Distinction rating for their 1984 
Annual Formal Inspection. This is the high- 
est rating possible. The extracurricular activ- 
ities expected this year's outcome to match 
last year's, when the two drill teams received 
ten trophies between them. 

Overall, the \ car showed a good turnout 
in enrollment and corps support.

'Tower' staff rebuilds 



The 1984-85 "Tower" started this year 
smoothly even though the staff lacked famil- 
iar veteran staffers. The paper this year be- 
gan with a smaller staff with less experience 
than recent years, giving this year's paper the 
image of a rebuilding year. 

To adapt to the staff changes and inex- 
perience the paper was reduced to eight pag- 
es, with exceptions for Christmas and the 
last two issues. This was a disappointment 
all around. Areas of the school and its activ- 
ities could not be covered properly but the 
sacrifice created a goal to work toward being 
able next year to go back to 16 pages. De- 
spite these problems of changes and exper- 
iencing new systems and methods the staff 
has grown in knowledge and experience and 
was able to put out a quality paper. 

The staff went through many changes and 
formations over the months. New members 
were welcomed on as well as others leaving. 
The paper regrets seeing people leave but it 
feels as though it has grown into a more 



tightly knit group. 

The people remaining have made it 
through a tough year— a year where at times 
a paper almost didn't come out, a year 
where people learned their limits as a journ- 
alist as well as a friend and partner. 

The paper has covered some major events 
and issues this year from the changing of the 
school year to the laying off of teachers. It 
has, as well, come out with unique and inter- 
esting features that represent a variety of int- 
erests. 

For the "Tower" to be judged against it- 
self in the past years would not be fair. It 
has changed drastically from year to year 
and its achievements in design and potential 
value are different each year. This year's 
staff has had its own qualities that aren't 
matched by past years and is looking for- 
ward to developing an even better "Tower" 
next year.

Howe continued to offer a full program 
of clubs and after-school activities in spite of 
new state guidelines which prohibited taking 
students from classes for other activities. All 
of the existing groups continued strong with 
the exception of the Inventor's Club, which 
disbanded after a year of activity. A high-

Youth leads 
council 

This was a better than average year for 
the student council as the group came up 
with a variety of successful activities ranging 
from the new "lip synch" contest, which 
was a smashing success, to the most tradi- 
tional ones like fall homecoming, which was 
also a success. Activities included dances, 
nursing home projects, various recognition 
days, a slave sale, and others too numerous 
to list. 

According to president Debbie Brown, 
the reason for the group's success was the 
enthusiasm of its members. Particularly en- 
couraging was the participation of many un- 
derclassmen in leadership roles. Debbie com- 
mented, "This year the student council has 
had one of the most enthusiastic groups I've 
seen. The students are coming up with great 
ideas and fund-raisers."

'Fiddler' a success 



This spring the music department of 
Howe High School continued its fine tradi- 
tion of presenting first-class musicals. 

""Fiddler on the Roof" was presented on 
March 22 and 23 to a near-capacity audience 
in the Howe auditorium. 

The setting for this musical is a small 
peasant town, Anatevka, in Tzarist Russia. 
Tevve, a dairyman, played by senior Dan 
Shockley, along with his wife, Golde, played 
bv senior Eileen Heady, and their five daugh- 
ters, Tzeitel (Regina Garza), Hodel (Lois 
Berg), Chava (Jill Stewart), Shprintze (The- 
resa Marshall), and Bielke (Amy Gable) com- 
prise one of the hard-working families of the 
community. Here these people live as their 
forefathers did, following the dictates of 
"tradition." 

Mr. Tom Lewis, producer and director of 
the musical, felt that the show went very 
well. "I've stayed away from presenting 
'Fiddler' at Howe for a long time because it's 



such a sensitive show. It just has to be done 
right," he said. "It was one of the most dra- 
matic presentations on the Howe stage in 
quite a while,"' he stated. 

Mr. Lewis also felt that casting the show 
was not a problem. "We had a lot of strong 
individuals this year, good soloists, and good 
actors," he added. 

Lewis also felt that a lot was learned from 
the show. "We learned many things about 
Jewish traditions, customs, their solemn re- 
spect for family, and their warm but off-beat 
sense of humor, which they amazingly kept 
throughout their plight with the Russians." 

Although at first Lewis didn't prefer do- 
ing "Fiddler on the Roof" because of its 
gloomy, depressing tone, it grew to be one 
of his favorite shows. Lewis felt that "Fid- 
dler on the Roof" was one of the best music- 
al performances ever presented on the Howe 
stage under his direction.

Homecoming 

Homecoming week was an eventful one as 
the student council and cheerleaders kept a 
full schedule of activities going all week. 
There were spirit and dress-up days for ever- 
yone's tastes. Perhaps the most successful 
was stuffed animal day as classrooms were 
filled with a variety of fuzzy creatures. 

Homecoming night itself saw the fresh- 
man class take the float competition much 
to the dismay of the seniors, who naturally 
felt their entry was the best. Senior Natalie 
Ochs was crowned homecoming queen at 
halftime of the football game, and senior 
Dennis Law was awarded the king's crown 
at the post-game dance. 

Breaking a streak of bad luck which had 
plagued them in recent seasons, the football 
team made the week a total success by de- 
feating east-side rival Arlington by a 33-28 
margin.

Boys' sports in rebuilding cycle 



Rebuilding was the first priority for the 
coaching staff as all the boys' sports pro- 
grams faced major gaps left open by gradua- 
tion and loss of talented athletes to other in- 
terests. Nearly every coach faced bleak pros- 
pects as inexperience and small turn-outs 
gave cause for concern from the beginning. 

Coach Dick Harpold's football squad 
faced perhaps the most difficult rebuilding 
job as graduation had taken most of the size 
and much of the talent from a squad which 
had managed only a 2-8 record in 1983. 
With a number of state powers on the sched- 
ule and no easy game in sight, the prospects 
might have looked almost hopeless. Instead 
the coaches found a determined group of 
athletes who worked well together and kept 
their spirits high as they gained experience 
under fire. 

With strong senior leadership from cap- 
tains Bruce Jacob and Gary Johnson and 
consistent play from senior Dennis Law pro- 
viding the example, the Hornets regrouped 
around sophomore quarterback Derek Haw- 
thorne. Hawthorne proved himself one of 
the top young quarterbacks in the state as he 
passed for a school-record 90 completions 
and second place in passing yardage. Haw- 
thorne's favorite target was junior Clyde 
Spencer, who returned to the squad after 
passing up his sophomore season. Spencer, 
who was named most valuable by his team- 
mates, pulled in a school-record 48 recep- 
tions and was one of the state leaders with 
744 yards on pass receptions. Both Haw- 
thorne and Spencer received all-state men- 
tion for their performances. 

Other strong individual performances 
were turned in by Law, who proved himself 
one of the most versatile athletes on the 
team as he kicked, ran, and caught the ball 
consistently well. Gary Johnson was the 
team's top defensive player and also received 
the best mental attitude award. Jeff Wells 
caught several key passes and kept the de- 
fenses honest for Spencer. Todd Whitehead 
and Adrian Dozier showed promise at run- 
ning hack. 

Most teams would not find a 4-6 record 



encouraging, but it was a step in the right 
direction as the Hornets improved steadily 
and won three of their last five games de- 
spite playing one of the state's toughest 
schedules. Five of their opponents were 
state-ranked and had records of 7-3 or bet- 
ter. Only powerful North Central and Perry 
Meridian ran away from the Hornets as the 
team put together a series of very respecta- 
ble performances in spite of their inexperi- 
ence. 

A reserve team short on numbers finished 
1-7 for the season, but the freshman squad 
showed promise on their way to a 4-4 rec- 
ord. Several of the freshmen appeared ready 
to move in and help next year's varsity right 
away. 

Prospects for next year's football pro- 
gram were encouraging as the Hornets ended 
the season with a convincing win over neigh- 
borhood rival Scecina. 

The boys's tennis team, traditionally one 
of Howe's most successful squads, started 
their season with a new coach as long-time 
coach Ron Finbiner moved over to assist 
with the football program. New coach Errol 
Spears found his squad short of both num- 
bers and experience as most of last year's 
top players, including state-ranked Greg 
Abella, had graduated. Only senior David 
Abella and David Gray had significant exper- 
ience. 

Like most of the other programs, the ten- 
nis team found itself facing a demanding 
schedule with inexperienced athletes. They 
managed a 6-9 season record and defeated all 
of the I.P.S. schools on their schedule except 
Manual. 

Coach Spears commented that a highlight 
of the season was the strong play of his sen- 
iors. Number one singles player David Abella 
reached the finals of both the sectional and 
the Lafayette Jefferson tournament. David 
Gray was seeded fourth in the city at num- 
ber two singles. Spears also praised the 
strong play and steady improvement of Jas- 
on Kimmell and Ron Miller at number two 
doubles. 

Coach Otis Curry's boys' cross country 



squad faced similar prospects as several of 
his top runners failed to return because of 
grades and other interests. Responding to 
the challenge, sophomore Sean Marcum es- 
tablished himself as the team leader. He fin- 
ished eleventh in the city, ninth in the sec- 
tional, and seventeenth in the regional. 

Several promising athletes competed for 
the other positions on the squad. Among the 
more consistent were senior James *A illiams 
and juniors Pete Gibson and Michael Hunter. 
Freshman Scott Wright also showed poten- 
tial as he finished third in the city 7 freshman 
race. 

The cross country team finished with a 
3-7 record. 

In spite of the problems faced by some of 
its teams, there were still signs of growth in 
the Howe athletic program as Coach Dave 
Stewart's Hornet Sting soccer club finally a- 
chieved varsity status and awarded letters for 
the first time. Although the team managed 
only one tie against nine losses in regularly 
scheduled games, they played well and were 
never completely dominated by any of their 
opponents. Only North Central and Cathe- 
dral were able to shut out the Hornets as an 
improved offense made the team a threat to 
score against anyone. 

Senior Tom Jewell earned MA P honors 
and proved himself the team leader as he al- 
ways seemed to be where the action was. 
Jon Stewart received the best mental atti- 
tude award. Junior Mark Strykowski was 
named most improved. Also coming in for 
his share of praise from Coach Stewart was 
sophomore Hyon Kim, who proved himself 
the offensive threat which the team had 
lacked in previous years. 

Coach Stewart complimented his squad 
for their determination and their ability to 
enjoy themselves in spite of their record. He 
praised their attitudes and hard work. 

Although the records weren't particularly 
good this fall, most of the teams were com- 
petitive and showed promise for improved 
records with continued experience.

Cheerleaders look back 



Senior cheerleaders were asked to say a 
few words about what their cheerleading ex- 
periences have meant to them. There are 
their responses: 

"One of the greatest things to happen to 
me my senior year was being named captain 
of the varsity cheerleading squad. I've made 
some good friendships out of cheerleading, 
and I've learned that it is possible to get 
eight girls to agree on something. My four 
years of high school cheerleading are the 
prominent thing that I will remember about 
high school; the fun and hardships of cheer- 
leading will always be with me." (Melisa 
Petree) 

"Cheerleading has been a valuable experi- 
ence because I have met many different peo- 
ple, worked with different kinds of people, 
and I've seen the true dedication of the u- 
nique cheerleaders I've worked with. I've re- 
ally enjoyed my years of leading the crowds 
and becoming hoarse for the football and 
basketball teams. Cheerleading was a lot of 



fun and 111 always remeber my cheerleading 
years at Howe as being great ones." (Marga- 
ret Coleman) 

"Cheerleading has been a very rewarding 
and enjoyable experience. During my time as 
a cheerleader, I developed many everlasting 
friendships and wonderful memories. Cheer- 
leading helped me to grow as a person and 
develop more confidence. It was an honor 
to support my school teams." (Holly Emery) 

"Cheerleading has been my life. It's me 
totally. Cheerleading is my way of expres- 
sing all the energy that I have inside. I love 
to be excited and being a cheerleader le-ts me 
be me. I've also learned a lot of responsibili- 
ty. It's not always fun and glamor. It's hard 
work but after the work is done you have a 
special feeling inside that says, 'Wow! We did 
it.' I've met a lot of really neat people and 
gone really neat places. I truly love being a 
cheerleader and I don't plan of giving it up 
after high school." (Annie Scott)

Grapplers top winter sports winners 



After a less-than-spectacular fall sports 
season, Hornet fans found the winter season 
more to their liking as the wrestling porgram 
produced a combined 21-6 record and the 
boys' basketball teams produced some top 
performances in spite of injuries and a de- 
manding schedule. 

Coach Jim Arvin entered the wrestling 
season filled with doubts and anticipating 
problems. Although Bruce Jacob had reach- 
ed the state finals as a junior and several oth- 
er experienced wrestlers were returning to 
the squad, Jacob began the season with a 
broken wrist and the "experienced" wrest- 
lers were primarily sophomores and juniors 
facing many of the top wrestlers in the state. 
In addition, long-time assistant coach Jerry 
McLeish had transferred to Attucks and Ar- 
vin was faced with the prospect of being the 
only Howe teacher on the wrestling staff. 
Fortunately, the problems never became as 
great as they might have and the season was 
spectacularly successful. 

With the help of Howe graduates Robbie 
Jacob, Russell Byrd, and Dana Craig, Arvin 
molded a varsity squad which was fourth in 
the city and finished 8-3 in dual meets. The 
reserves finished 6-2 and also placed fourth 
in their city tournament. A talented fresh- 
man squad finished 7-1 and placed second in 
the city. 

A list of individual accomplishments 
would be almost endless as nearly everyone 
on the squad did well. Senior Bruce Jacob 
was voted MV P and finished second on the 
all-time Howe list in career wins with a 
73-26-1 record. He added a sectional title, 
although he failed to reach the state level 
this year. Seniors James Foster, Bob Wiese, 
and Wayne Elliott also closed out their ca- 
reers. 

Perhaps the most impressive part of the 
varsity record was the fact that it was ac- 
complished with underclassmen in key posi- 
tions. I en of the thirteen weights were nor- 
mally manner hv underclassmen. Juniors 
Mark Cleary, Bill Holliday, Ron Grayson, 
Dave Vespo, and Steve Milligan showed 



promise of becoming one of Howe's stron- 
gest senior groups next season. Sophomore 
Butch Petree and freshmen Brian McDonald 
and Rod Marcum were also impressive in 
spite of inexperience. 

With many lettermcn returning next year 
and outstanding reserve and freshman teams 
to build on, the outlook for next year prom- 
ises even better results. 

Although the boys' basketball teams 
couldn't quite match the records of the 
wrestling teams, they also performed excep- 
tionally well at times and showed flashes of 
brilliance. Coach James Thompson's varsitv 
squad, which had started the season with al- 
most no experience after losing a large senior 
group, developed slowly but turned in some 
top performances during the season. Because 
the football play-offs forced Warren Central 
to postpone several basketball games includ- 
ing the Howe opener, the Hornet squad was 
forced to open late against teams which had 
already played several games. The result was 
three straight losses before the squad split 
their next two games and then rolled off a 
streak of seven straight wins. 

The seven-game winning streak was cli- 
maxed by a nearly perfect performance 
against top-ten-rated Manual in the city tour- 
nament. No team could have played better 
than the Hornets did in their 82-77 victory. 
Unfortunately, the streak was ended in the 
tournament finals against Cathedral as some 
controversial calls took the momentum and 
the lead away from the Hornets late in the 
game. The Hornets were never quite the 
same after that as injuries, inconsistency, 
and lack of confidence plagued the squad 
the rest of the season. They won only three 
more games and finished the season with an 
11-12 record. 

Although the record was disappointing, 
there were some excellent individual efforts 
and the future looks good. Senior Charleston 
Bowles, who received the prestigious John 
Elliott Award for most improved player, 
provided outstanding leadership both offen- 
sively and defensively. Junior Clyde Spencer 



was an excellent rebounder and shot-block- 

er. Both Bowles and Spencer were named 
first-team all-city tournament players, and 
Bowles was named to the coaches all-cit\ 
team at the end of the season. Senior R.andy 
Fields improved steadik throughout the rea- 
son and received the best mental attitude 
award. Senior Thomas Hindman provided 
strong relief and started several sanies. I. n- 
derclassmen Jerome Gibbs. Darron Crowe. 
James Smith, and Mark St. Martin showed 
promise but lacked consistency . 

Coach Kevin Johnson - reserve squad 
played hard but never quite produced a- well 
as expected. Thev finished with a 3-16 rec- 
ord. 

Howe graduate Ron Lawson handled a 
talented freshman squad which finished 10-7 
against top competition. The squad was led 
in scoring bv center/ forward Devin Davis 
and guard John Fdmond. Several of the 
freshmen were elevated to the reserve squad 
at the end of the season and Davis was 
named to the v arsity roster for the sectional 
tournament. 

On a less positive note, the boys swim 
team finished with a winless record. After 
last year's city championship team was deci- 
mated bv graduation, few went out for the 
squad this year and the learn ended the sea- 
son with only three members. New coach 
Melinda Rumschlag was forced to forfeit the 
relay events and the team simply couldn t 
score the points needed for v ictory . J-opho- 
more Todd bright received both M\ P and 
best mental attitude awards. Steve Sommer- 
ville was named most improved. Freshman 
Scott Wright, who was the team's top city 
meet performer, rounded out the squad. 

A special highlight of the boys" athletic 
program occurred when wrestling coach Jim 
Arvin was nominated for national coach of 
the year honors by the Indiana High School 
W restling Coaches Association. An in. who 
is a member of the Indiana ^\ restling Hall of 
Fame, also took over as president of the 
coaches' group at its annual awards banquet.

Campbell, Ochs lead girls' sports 



There were few titles and few winning 
records for girls' sports at Howe this year as 
individual accomplishments seemed to out- 
weigh team titles. 

Senior distance runner Alberta Campbell 
continued to dominate city runners as she 
became the first female runner to win back- 
to-back city titles in cross country. By estab- 
lishing an automatic record at the new 4,000 
meter distance, she became the owner of 
more school records than any other female 
runner. She now holds individual records at 
all distances from 800 meters on up and was 
a member of the 1,600-meter relay team 
which set a school record in last year's state 
track meet. 

In spite of inexperience the girls' team 
finished with a 12-7 record. Sophomore Kim 
Ferrell gave Campbell good support as num- 
ber two runner. Junior Elva Keaton, who 
was named most improved runner, held 
down the number three position. Juniors 
Cari Cavin and Penny Pennington, sopho- 
more Lecia Keaton, and freshman Cassandra 
Crowe held down the other spots on the 
team. 

Coach James Perkins was particularly 
complimentary to Penny Pennington, recipi- 
ent of the best mental attitude award, for 
her dedication, determination, and good ex- 
ample for his younger runners. 

Continuing its domination of the city 
meet, Coach Steve Dunlap's swim team 
brought home another city title behind the 
leadership of Kristy Dunlap, who broke her 
own city point record in diving. Freshman 
Michelle \\ illiams was city champion in the 
50-yard freestyle. Junior Michelle Hayes fin- 
ished second in the city diving competition 
and became Howe's first qualifier for the 
state swim meet with an excellent sectional 
performance. 

Several school records were broken as 
senior Beth Staley added a new mark in the 
100 freestyle and the medley relay team of 
Williams, Jill Stewart, Staley, and Jennifer 
Bonar also established a new record. 

Coach Dunlap predicted a good future; for 
his swimmers as his young competitors 
showed more talent than any previous team. 
The young squad finished with a 6-7 record 
agairi.il strong opposition. 

Even the best of teams has a down year. 



An inexperienced volleyball squad struggled 
through another losing season and finished 
with a 3-16 record. The reserve squad did 
not fare much better, finishing 4-12. 

Coach Alice Purvis complimented her 
squad for their attitudes and hard work. She 
noted that Jenni Hudelson, Shunte Sanders, 
and Carlisa Turner were good hitters and 
Lynda Ward, Chevene Bridgeforth, Jane 
Bussey, and Kim Pritt were good all-around 
players. She also mentioned that sophomore 
Stephanie Oleksy showed great promise as a 
hitter/setter. 

The golf team, although finishing with a 
5-6 record, showed promise as Coach Joe 
\ollmer continued to mold inexperienced 
golfers into a competitive team. Senior Deb- 
bie Brown established a nine-hole record of 
42 and was named most valuable. She grad- 
uates with Howe's all-time best career aver- 
age. Senior Natalie Ochs, who was named 
most improved, became Howe's first regional 
qualifier in girls' golf. Sophomore Kalhy 
Schwedler received the best mental attitude 
award. 

The winter season saw Howe's once- 
proud gymnastics program in deep trouble. 
New coach James Price, an excellent teacher, 
found the twelve who signed up quickly 
down to three participants after a few days 
of practice. With only three athletes, each 
one had to participate in every event in or- 
der to field a team. No one could specialize 
and do her best in an event. 

The high point of a winless season was 
the performance of talented freshman Dana 
Kees, who was named MVP. Junior Michelle 
Hayes received the best mental attitude a- 
ward. 

With the start of the basketball season, 
Hornet fans saw one of the most outstanding 
performances ever turned in by a Howe ath- 
lete. Senior guard Natalie Ochs surprised al- 
most everyone by leading central Indiana in 
scoring with a 26.6 average which broke ev- 
ery school record and ranked her fourth in 
tin; state. She broke the school single-game 
record three times and had a season high of 
47. Her total output was 479 points in 18 
games. She led the Hornets in every statisti- 
cal category. In addition, she was the top 
vote-getter for the all-city team and ranked 
in the top five in the city in every category. 



She was invited to all-star team try-outs and 
was considering scholarship offers at dead- 
line time. ObviousK. she was -elected both 
MY P and most valuable senior. 

As for team accomplishments, the Hor- 
nets were not expected to do particular!}, 
well but surprised evervone by finishing 
11-7. Seniors Tracy Price and Shunte San- 
ders both performed well a.- role plav er^. 
Price was the team's second-leading scorer 
and Sanders provided outside shooting and 
rebounding off the bench. Newcomer Flva 
Keaton developed into one of the top defen- 
sive and rebouding centers in the city in her 
first year of play. Freshman Tasha Price 
took over point guard duties and showed 
flashes of offensive brilliance. Freshman 
Chelsea Hudson, an excellent jumper, be- 
came the fifth starter late in the season and 
showed that she is one of the best shot- 
blockers in the girls" game. Freshman Dana 
Ochs and sophomore Kim Pritt also prov ided 
bench strength and gained invaluable experi- 
ence for next season. 

The high point of the season for the team 
was probablv a 60-59 loss to top-ranked 
Warren Central on the Howe floor. Although 
the defeat broke a 27-game homecourt win- 
ning streak, the Hornets put forth their 
best team effort of the season and proved 
they could plav with anyone. 

A second highlight would have been a 
heart-breaking 53-51 loss to citv champion 
Roncalli. one of the state "s top teams, in the 
finals of the Beech Grove sectional. Only a 
last-second driving shot b\ Roncalli senior 
Susan Hoereth kept the game from going in- 
to overtime with the Hornets plav ing well 
and momentum seeming to turn in their 
favor. 

Coach Otis Cum commented frequently 
throughout the season that he had enjov ed 
the 1984-85 season as much as any because 
his girls had performed exceptional! v well 
for a v oung team and there had been no 
pressure. He ended the season with a gleam 
in his eves as he spoke of his team's future 
with exceptional talent returning for next 
season. 

All in all. it was a good year for girls" 
sports at Howe.

'Hilltopper' problems continue 



Sixty-five pages of unfinished yearbook 
stare at me from a table where they wait un- 
til I can find a way to finish them. For the 
second year in a row a staff has wasted un- 
told hours and simply abandoned page after 
page at the end of school with no regard for 
responsibilities. Work which could have been 
finished in three or four days by a few kids 
working together sits there waiting for some- 
one else to start over from the beginning. 
Only a miracle or some willing workers will 
finish it, but my belief in miracles is almost 
gone and the room is empty day after day. 

A student activity is a fragile thing. Ever- 
ybody wants to join a winning team, but 
teenagers desert very quickly if the record is 
poor and even the best of programs can fall 
apart almost overnight. Losing becomes a 
habit because it brings losing attitudes which 
don't disappear easily. After three straight 
years of late yearbooks, I'm not sure the los- 
ing attitudes can be overcome. 

Howe High School isn't alone in this re- 
gard. Publications programs are in serious 
trouble in city schools across the country. 
Prices are up and sales are down as inflation 
drives production eosts up each year and 
teenagers find more exciting places to spend 
their money. Staffs are smaller and often less 
dedicated. Missed deadlines are frequently 
the rule rather than the exception. News- 
papers cancel issues and yearbooks change 
delivery dates trying to survive. Some 
schools cancel their publications programs 
entirely when it no longer seems possible to 
keep them going. Yearbooks are usually first 
to go for numerous reasons. 

After forty-four years the "Hilltopper" is 
fighting for its existence. It won't survive un- 
less student body, parents, and faculty want 
it to survive and give it the support it needs. 
Just how close it could be to dying was 
brought home forcefully a few days ago 
when a school staff member asked me why I 
didn't get the yearbook finished. I won't de- 
scribe the explosion which followed because 
someone too-naively throught it was the ad- 
visor s job to perform student jobs. 

For the lady in the office and the others 
who don't understand what a yearbook is 
and for those who do understand and ask me 
why i keep at it year after year, this is a 
yearbook as I see it from the inside after 
eleven years as advisor: 

A yearbook is not just a picture book or a 
mem or)' book or a service to the school or 
any of the other (unctions it might have. A 
yearbook is, first of all, a student activity a 
place for students to have fun and learn 
some very valuable lessons. More than any 



other activity, it reflects the student body 
with all its strengths and weaknesses. It is 
produced by students, for students, and a- 
bout students (and about teachers too, of 
course, but mostly about students). An ad- 
visor can help out and can fill in the gaps of 
any given year, but the jobs have to be done 
mostly by students or the program won't 
survive. 

An activity— that means doing things. The 
big difference from other activities is that 
this one has a tough goal— putting together a 
book about people in action. It can be lots 
of fun but it can't be all fun or the goal is 
never quite reached. Putting together a book 
means putting aside differences and working 
together (awfully hard for lots of kids) to 
reach that goal. It means doing things on 
time and meeting deadlines set by strangers 
in a printing plant in a small town in Missou- 
ri. It means doing things now just to get 
something months from now. Lots of nice 
kids just can't do the job because they can't 
handle long-range goals without someone 
constantly reminding them of work to be 
done. 

It means even more than that because ev- 
erything in a yearbook depends on someone 
else. There is nothing to put in a yearbook 
unless you can get it from other people who 
don't really know much about a yearbook or 
understand how important it is to have in- 
formation when you ask for it. It is so easy 
for those people who don't understand to 
put your request aside for later and forget a- 
bout it. It is just as easy to put aside having a 
yearbook picture taken because other things 
seem more important. Unfortunately, one 
missing picture leaves an awful gap in a year- 
book and one piece of missing information 
or one person who forgets is enough to make 
you miss a deadline. One missed deadline is 
enough to give you a late yearbook. A late 
yearbook means declining sales, fewer new 
staff members, more late yearbooks, more 
declining sales and on and on and on. 

Missed deadlines are nothing new. Kids 
have always gotten behind in their work and 
probably always will. The big difference is 
that slowness and missed deadlines are ac- 
cepted now. Kids used to work themselves 
half to death to make up for missed dead- 
lines. They don't now. Most of them don't 
even make excuse for missed deadlines any 
longer. 

As for missing yearbook deadlines, there 
really aren't any immediate consequences. 
Grades don't truly motivate a person who 
isn't motivated already. The same people 
who missed deadline after deadline will walk 



down the halls with the ^arnc- number of 
friends they had before their \ earbook m a- 
late. After all, sitting through classes with 
the promise of doing the work later or tak- 
ing the course over in summer school i- too 
often the accepted pattern anymore. It 
won't be until years later that poor work 
habits and complacent attitudes take their 
toll in opportunities and promotions lost. 

I was almost amused by an article in the 
last "Tower" of the school vear which asked 
members of the student body if there mould 
be some punishment/corwquerx es for a late 
yearbook. The response- were unanimous in 
saying there should be. As often as 1 have 
wanted to "punish" those who haven't done 
their jobs. I haven't found a practical wax. 
Of the five people who had the nerve to take 
a yearbook period the fall semester after two 
late yearbooks in a row. three were no lon- 
ger enrolled at Howe by mid wax through the 
second semester. Their place- were taken bx 
two freshman volunteers who tried to learn 
their jobs under the pressure of being far be- 
hind already. IroniealK . of the students 
quoled in the "Tower" none had offered to 
help out and. as far as I know, none had 
even ordered a yearbook. Punishment, it 
seems, consists of refusing to buy a \ ear- 
book and probably forcing its destruction 
rather than supporting it and helping it to 
survive. 

There has been no shortage of people ask- 
to help the past two years. Unfortunately, 
many of them have not been good prospects 
for various reasons. It takes a special kind of 
dedication and the ability to work in long- 
range terms to be a good yearbook staffer. 
The only way to see whether a student has 
those qualities is to give him/her a chance. If 
a staff member later quits or fails to do the 
job properly, someone else has to take over 
his job. We have had far too many who have 
joined for a short time simply to disappear 
for more-glamorous activities with others 
forced to pick up jobs the) had begun. 

There is a type of person 1 call a "joiner." 
He joins every activity in sight trying to find 
something he can do. W hen he finds he can t 
fit in, he drops one activ ity and goes on to 
something else. A yearbook staff gets more 
than its share of this type. Most of them 
want to be photographers, it seems, because 
photography seems to be easy and is a good 
way to get in free at a football game. A few 
of them have taken pictures with instant 
cameras. Some have held a 35 millimeter 
camera for a few minutes and know which 
direction to point the lens. Others admit 
they know nothing but want to learn. All of

them fiavc the mistaken idea tliat photogra- 
phy is casj . They have been so misled l>\ ads 
lor autoexpoaurc, autofocus cameras tliat 
they think the camera docs ever) tiling in- 
cluding show up for the picture session, 
press tin' button, and develop the film after- 
ward. I nfortunately, wc don t use automat- 
ic focus or automatic exposure cameras and 
I haven't seen one yet with automatic re- 
sponsibility. 1'holograph) is a demanding, 
overcrowded profession with few job oppor- 
tunities and hard work far outweighs the 
glamor. 

In a normal year I have at least a do/en 
students who ask to take pictures for the 
yearbook. One of those might work out in a 
good year. In a had year none ol them will 
work out. The past two years have been gen- 
erally had ones. A lew kids have shown 
promise hut most of them have lacked the 
self-discipline to learn photograph) ami the 
responsibilit) to meet assignments. The pres- 
ent staff has two promising young photog- 
raphers, hut there is always room lor more 
photographers on a yearbook stall. 

Many of tin- oilers to help have been 
wasted because there is very little anyone 
Can do to help unless he has a y earhook per- 
iod. Most jobs on a yearbook stall require 
training w Inch can't he picked up in a hurry . 
None of the jobs are very difficult, but 
there isn't much an untrained person can do 
except sort album pictures or write copy. 
The allium should he finished before Christ- 
mas and there haven 1 ! been too many offers 
to w rite copy . 

It also takes a certain amount of academ- 
ic ability to do yearbook work. Although 
lew ol' the jobs arc difficult, all of them lake 
basic intelligence and the ability to make de- 
cision.-, quickly. I nless a student has special 
talents, we cant take a chance on a person 
who isn't performing well in the classroom. 
Classroom performance is still the best indi- 
cator we have of how a student will handle 
yearbook responsibilities. 

Scheduling yearbook stall has been a tie 
mendous problem since l.l'.S. went to the 
seven period day. Since |')7Jl every piece <>f 
lv |>e used in the "I lilltopper" has been Bel 
on a very sophisticated type composer which 

requires several weeks of training for a stu 

dent l<> use it properly. The best typists in 
school have been in work -tudv programs 
and haven't had room in their schedules lor 

.1 yearbook period. With our system, the 

wont thing which could happen is to lose a 

typist because typists e imply can't be re 
placed during a school year. That haves the 
advisor as the only other person in the 
school who can use the composer. H the ad 
visor is forced to become an emergency iv u 
isl, every other pari ol his job become, neai 



lv impossible ami every aspect of the year- 
book Buffers. \ young stall, particularly, 

needs extra help which they can't get if tin 
advisor is lied up in other jobs. 

I hi- i- perhaps the last traditional year- 
book to be attempted at Howe. Copy has al- 
ready been tut drastically because good writ- 
ers haven t been available or willing to com- 
mit themselves to a long-term project. There 
aren't too many ways of making the job any 

easier. The lew remaining ones will be tried 

this coming year. II they don't succeed, a 

yearbook may become a thing of the past at 
Howe as it has at many other urban schools. 

Most of those changes will involve further 
use of computers. There arc now computer 
programs available which will make il possi- 
ble to do every lay out for an entire book in 
one evening. The endless hours of drawing 
layouts and lilting out company forms will 
be a thing of the past. The computer will al- 
so replace the type composer as wc will be- 
gin to semi type to the printer on computer 
disk in much tin- same way as the "Tower"' 
has lor the past two years. This method will 
give us the advantage of belter proofreading 
as a computerized spelling checker program 
will virtually eliminate misspellings and ty- 
pographical errors. 

In order lo streamline our operation e\ en 
further, student pictures are being taken 
much earlier than usual to provide extra 
time to put together the album. Willi earlier 
picture dates much of the work can be com- 
pleted a month earlier than in previous 
years. 

Many of our scheduling problems will al- 
so be solved as Mr. Unlet' Heck has taken 
great pains lo move the yearbook period to a 
spoi in the schedule where ii no longer con- 
flicts with certain courses which compete for 
top students. Students will now he able to 
sign up for yearbook on a half-period basis 
opposite their lunch period. A number of 
very capable hand-picked students have al- 
ready signed up. 

None of this w ill do any good without 
student leadership. I nless a yearbook is im- 
portant enough lo the student body, the 
publication will die a natural death from 
lack of interest. Students must be willing i>> 
provide llic ideas and do the work, and they 
must be willing to gupport the book finan- 
cially. \ yearbook -lall should mil have lo 

sell candy to raise funds as staffs at many 

schools do. ami yearbook prices should mil 
be driven up past twenty dollar- as they have 

been al many school-. II every person m llic 
NchoOl bought .1 book, priti'- could be re- 

iliu id rather than raised.

help I he v car book -la II I iv Ii. iv in_: I In- i on 1 1 
deuce lo order y carl k- early. I or years il 



has been a -orl ol game on the part ol many 

students to ion. yearbook staffers into 
ging them to buy. Many have -imply planned 
lo wait and Bee if their pictures appear ••- 
nougli times io -.iti-iv them. I in- has forced 
yearbook Bales campaigns to la-t longer and 

longer and ha- laken vital time awav Irom 

yearbook production. I nfortunately, sales 
resistance the past couple of year- has 

caused US to order too many extra book- on 
-pei illation rather than cut the size ol the 

yearbook as we should have. Missed dead- 
line- and the resulting lateness have I. It u- 
with unsold books and wc an- in -eriou- 

financial trouble. 

I In two main goals of the "Hflltopper 
staff mu-t be financial solvency and meeting 
deadlines to re-establish credibility . W .• mu-t 
keep the book as simple as possible and we 
must order only the number ol book- we 

can afford. Those who wish yearbooks mu-t 

order them in advance rather than wailing to 
see whether their picture- appear. I lure will 
be no extra books available in the spring. In 
addition, we may have to reduce tin- size of 
the book if sales do not improve, financial 
stability is far more important now than the 
-i/e of the y earhook. 

I per-onally feel every -Indent and facul- 
ty member has a reason to buy a yearbook. 
Some of those reasons may not be obvious 
for years, but hardly a week goes by when I 
don't have a call from someone wanting to 
lot ate a copy ol an old yearbook. \ er\ rare- 
ly can I be of help because the book- have 
disappeared or been sold oil or destroyed. 
In my own case. I have copies of every year- 
book since I started leaching at Howe and 
refer lo them frequently . 

When I began writing. I said something a- 
bollt the people who ask why I keep try ing 
to put out a yearbook year alter year when 
it gets harder lo do it each year. 1 1 ha- some- 
thing to do with the same reasons I buy a 
yearbook myself and something to do with 
what a yearbook is a student acliv ilv . a ser- 
vice to the school, a memory hook, and all 
the other answers. 

My chain ol thought took me back lo an 
experience several year- ago ol Bitting 
through the funeral ol a BtudenL II w.i- the 
largest funeral I had ever attended. I remem- 
ber being the only teacher there and In ing 
shocked al how lull the church was because 
he had been a quiet kid m\iI hadn't made a 
big impression on anyone al school. I n 
member sitting there listening to all the 
things the minister -.ml and thinking how 

hllle I or anyone else al school had known 
the boy. I remember seeing In- name added 
lo the lo-- h-i m the teacher workroom a 

lew days later with the simple explanation 

"deceased.* \ yearbook picture bring* back 



I loting I l' 



lots of memories. 

Sort of at random I thought of the num- 
ber of times in elven years that 1 have been 
contacted by a parent wanting pictures of a 
child who had died. The last time was just 
this spring. Sometimes I could help. A lot of 
times I couldn't. 

My mind wandered again to my first year- 
book staff in 1974. I thought of all those 
kids who took on the nearly impossible task 
of putting together a yearbook with the 
school's first late yearbook facing them from 
the previous staff. Teresa, and Candy, and 
Phil, and Glen and all the others whose 
names I can't quite remember without look- 
ing at the yearbook. Gutty kids who would- 
n't be defeated. Phil taught me to love the 
darkroom and Glen was probably the best 
student photographer in the country when 
he graduated. 

The years after that are filled with names 
and memories of kids who left a record in 
the yearbook if nowhere else. Steve, who 
could do anything and took pictures when 
he had the time. Janice, the athlete-editor, 
involved in everything. Tina and Leslie, who 
never became editor but always came 
through when everyone else failed. Andy, 



who edited his college book. Debbie, who 
made everybody around her feel good to be 
alive. The '79 book one of the best in the 
country. The '80 book my favoritie. l,ori, 
the cheerleader-editor. Tom, a first-year 
staffer as a senior, the one who got things 
finished. Jim, the football player who loved 
to write. Twin editors in '81. Jackie and 
Wendy and Nanette and the support of the 
Skaggs family. A Christmas card from a 
mother thanking me for helping leach her 
daughters the value of hard work. The Davis 
sisters, Barbara and Sheila. Eileen, who ac- 
complished everything as a freshman. Photo- 
graphing weddings for former staff members. 
And the list could go on and on and on. 
Or the others who never thought of join- 
ing a yearbook staff. The ones 1 can't forget. 
The pictures 1 look at when I want to re- 
member something. Tom Marcndl, the AU- 
American football player who never gave less 
than his best on or off the field. Rick Mc- 
Kinstry, the basketball player with the soul 
of a poet. Mark, the football player who has 
never stopped reminding me that he de- 
served an A instead of the B+ I gave him one 
six weeks in an English class. Alberta, who 
became a champion in spite of the odds. 



Natalie, playing until she was read) to drop 
by halftime and then playing a> hard a- -li< 
could the rest of the game. 

Or all the teams and coaches who keep at 
it win or lose Dick and Jake and \rv and 
James and Otis and all the rest who know 
the value of competition and never giving 
up. 

Or the hundreds of teachers who have 
come and gone in 19 years, most of them 
teaching because they enjov kid- and want 
everyone to have a better life. 

Or the faces in hundreds of classes which 
blend together in my memory. The thou- 
sands who have passed through in 19 \ car-. 
The faces I pass in the hallwav every day. 
Names and faces I recognize but never quite 
put together until I sec them on a page. 

Or the thousands who came and went 
long before that. The old-fashioned picture- 
in old-fashioned books. People behind tin- 
pictures who made this school different 
from the others. 

1 guess I keep doing it because no one de- 
serves to be forgotten.
